It’s jumping spider season. Nearly all of the ones I see are light brown or gray, and tiny. But flashier spiders pop up occasionally. The second to last spider has a coppery color to its abdomen, and the last one is the fanciest kind I’ve seen around here.
This is Bean. She is a Regal Jumping Spider (Phidippus regius). I’ve had her since she was very wee. She amazes me every single day with her quirkiness and curiosity. I happen to think she’s the cutest spider on the planet… but I’m a tad biased. I can’t stop taking photos of her though… that face!!!
AS: SO CUTE!
